Now, a direct entry for Indian students in Oxford
Kharagpur (West Bengal): Oxford University has decided to allow the toppers of ISC and CBSE exams entry to its undergraduate courses from 2013, an university official said.
The vice chancellor professor of Oxford, Andrew Hamilton, Friday expressed his happiness over the decision.
"We want to draw the best students from India to Oxford. It has been decided that we will accept Class 12 examination results for all undergraduate courses at Oxford," Hamilton told reporters.
Earlier, Indian students needed to appear for their A-levels, SATs or the International Baccalaureate as the criteria for getting admitted in the undergraduate courses at Oxford.
Under the new rule, the university will now make conditional offers of entrance to those students who get more than 90 percent in CBSE and ISC exams.
An Indian aspirant who opts for the science course in Oxford may also need to take the Indian IIT entrance examination.
